THE REST OF THE STORY
• Ben Ruvo led off the game with a single before a fielder's choice put CJ Gillmer at first with one out. After a ground out, Luke D'Ostillio reached on an infield single before a throwing error staked Washington to a 1-0 lead.
• In the bottom of the frame, DJ Biscoe (Millersville, Md./Old Mill) reached on a one-out single to shallow left before a Tim Griest (Lititz, Pa./Warwick) walk.

• Ruvo led off the third with a single before stealing second and taking third on a bunt single. An Aaron Barclay single through the left side tied the game.
• Ryan Colbert and Max Ruvo led off the fourth with back-to-back singles before a wild pitch put two runners in scoring position with two outs. Gillmer singled into center field to score both runners for a 4-2 lead.
• Three straight singles started the fifth before a Dylan Nepert double down the line made it a 6-2 game.
• An pair of seventh-inning errors coupled with a walk, hit batter and two singles accounted for a three-run inning that pushed the lead to 9-2.
